Officer Maloney was my Great Great Uncle. When ever you walk in the the Hall of Justice in San Francisco you see his name on the Wall of Honor and it hits you hard. My grandfather joined the department the same year as his uncle was killed. Thank God he, and all the other members of the family made it through to finish their careers.
I believe that there should be a special honor for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us all safe, a "Medal of Sacrafice" for police and fire who jump in harm's way for us.
